What: "The Torrents of Spring"
When: Sunday, February 28,[masked]:00 PM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
After "In Our Time" we move onto Hemingway's first novella, "The Torrents of Spring."
Here's the wikipedia description:
The Torrents of Spring is a novella written by Ernest Hemingway published in 1926. Hemingway's first novel, it was written as a parody of Sherwood Anderson. Subtitled "A Romantic Novel in Honor of the Passing of a Great Race" Hemingway used the work as a spoof of the world of writers.
The Torrents of Spring was Hemingway's first novel, though The Sun Also Rises was his first successful novel. Hemingway wrote The Torrents of Spring as means to cause his publisher, Horace Liveright of Boni & Liveright, to refuse publication. Hemingway then switched publishers to Scribner's?who published his work from that time on.
There were some complaints about the Boxcar Lounge being too dark. Otherwise people seemed to like it. The bar tender said he could turn on additional lights for us and that I could even bring in a lamp since the 7-9 p.m. Sunday slot is not too busy. I'd like to keep it here, but I am open to suggestions.
